Tim has been very aggressive on the player market in recent times (in particular the last 9 rounds) so probably a wise move there.

Bit of a gamble I'll admit. I don't believe in trades.

Sadly too many head knocks for Fultron I think, he doesn't run or tackle any more.

Trading Shaun Johnson for Pat Richards is yours Ben

Trading Shaun Johnson for Pat Richards and Kurt Gidley actually. I am more than happy with that one. I guess this is why you have never won a comp, always thinking round by round. Still we need coaches to make up the numbers.

Not sure how I feel about this:

I guess Cappy rates him, and he'll hopefully be coming for cheap. One definite positive is it means bye bye Nielson.

Pretty standard Warriors recruiting to be fair.

Go after Matai, Hiku and Luke and end up with Friend and Allwood.

What happened the English Prop experiment? get 2 exciting young props to come over and use the facilities for a year and then let them go back to Superleague?

I think it's an okay signing, Allwood seems to have had a pretty good rookie season and not all your recruits can be a mil +.

What bugs me is Matulino going back to the front row. I've been bleating about him being a back-rower for years now and I thought two tries and a couple of hundred metres in two games plus a license to use his best weapon, the offload would count as vindication. Add to this Benry doing pretty bloody well in the centres and I think it's a backward step. Our outsides exc. Manu are already too short to counter the NRL's #1 tactic as that man-mountain (hmmpf) Croker showed in the Canberra game. And Canberra are shit. Now we've added lockes imposing frame to rectify it. Hmmm...

I know Allwood has been dropped to NSW cup for a couple of weeks but this prob has more to do with Canberra's form than his own.

Yeah but nah, we dont need another young centre who may one day develop into the kind of player we need, we have about 5 of them already Fusitua, Peyroux, Laumape, Hurrell, Maumalo and you could possibly include Benry in that conversation as well.

He would have to be cheap but wouldnt it be better to spend that money on the next Peta Hiku that comes through the U20's?

That's ridiculous! We don't buy U20's players, we train them up and then let them go...

Sipp has a point there. We should only be bringing over guys who we think could be superstars (e.g Maloney, ummm other examples of bringing over cheap unproven people and it working... Michael Witt) Or people who have proven they have it We gotta stop bringing over Joel Moons and Dane Nielsons.

Still easy to say in hindsight, the wraps on Moon and nielson were pretty big.

We should be working on Laumape and Hurrell they have to be our long term centre pairing for the next 5+ years.

So 2015 could look something like this

1 Tomkins
2 Laumape
3 Henry
4 Hurrell
5 Vatuvei
6 Townsend
7 Johnson
8 Matulino
9 Friend
10 Lillyman
11 Hoffman
12 Bukuya
13 Mannering

14 Havili
15 Rapira
16 Matagi
17 Mateo

Makes me think that that maybe we should've got a front rower to partner Lillyman, and left Matulino in the 2nd row as has been mentioned. Our 2nd row stocks are ridiculously healthy, at least Mateo is just impact off the bench now. Hoffman better be worth the kings ransom he is getting paid.

I don't think Allwood goes straight into a starting spot, he probably gets the Peyroux treatment and is a depth signing. Dunno what happens with Fish, i think Laumape is a better wing option.

Dear Cappy,

I think you should spend some money on signing John Wesley Tauti.

On Debut

Last Week

You will notice that is a number 5 on his jersey, however his preferred position is centre. Apparently we need a couple of those.

Kind regards,
Peter Fortune

Todd Carney does it again.  Serious NSFW material.

Yes it's real.  Yes, I wish I hadn't seen it either.
